WEEK #21

K4 thru 2nd grade continued to get ready for Jump Rope for Heart. Simple jump rope tricks were practiced. We also manipulated the ropes into numbers, letters, and shapes. We also played some long rope activities called Snake in the Grass, High Fence Low Fence, Tic Toc, Around the World, and Cat and Mouse.

3rd thru 5th grade this week learned and practiced many different skills. 3rd grade developed their dribbling skills, 4th grade developed their ball handling skills, and 5th grade developed their shooting skills. The activities that were played to reinforce these skills were Knockout, Shoot out, and Dribble Flag Tag.
6th grade this week is finishing up learning about the five levels of fitness!!! This week we discussed body composition. We defined it, learned some examples of it, and finished up with why it's important to have a healthy body composition. The activities that were used to help reinforce this were called Body Fat Tag and Build a Body!! Their test will be next week. Make sure to study!

7th/8th grade this week is also continuing to learn about the five levels of fitness. This week we discussed muscular strength, muscular endurance, and flexibility. A station course was used to help learn about muscular strength and endurance. In this course, we had stability balls, resistance bands, dumb bells, and the climbing wall. For flexibility, we played scooter basketball while also talking about the difference between stretching to prevent injury and stretching to improve flexibility.
